Event information

In collaboration with Columbia University’s Earth Institute, we would like to invite you to a series of webinars for K-12 students and educators. The EI LIVE K-12 channel will feature experts from across the Earth Institute presenting relevant sustainability content in 45-minute live sessions for K12 students and educators.  This Thursday, J. Nicolas Hernandez-Aguilera, Postdoctoral Research Scientist, International Research Institute for Climate and Society, and Max Mauerman, Earth Institute Staff Associate, will talk to students about how despite advances in measuring historical climate conditions with satellites and weather stations, scientific instruments do not always reflect what is happening on the ground. They will present a mobile game, iKON, to gather accurate historical climate data from communities around the world.  During each EI K-12 session the NASA Education Program Specialist from NASA’s Office of STEM Engagement at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies will provide supplemental NASA education, content, platforms and resources relevant to the weekly topic for further exploration and discovery.

This Thursday’s episode (April 15), is entitled Talking About the Weather – Crowdsourcing and Memories of Climate and will be presented at 4:00 PM ET.
